David Brown’s Speedback – Just One of Ten     

Silverstone-based David Brown Automotive has unveiled the latest commission in its limited run of Speedback Silverstone Edition luxury grand tourers, one of just 10 to be built. As with all DBA cars it has been built to order.

This particular ultra-exclusive Silverstone Edition is destined for an owner in Asia, having had over 8,000 hours of cherished handiwork the company’s expert team of dedicated builders.

This Speedback has an aluminium body finished in ‘Black Metallic’ – the hand-painting process alone takes over eight weeks to complete.

How much care and attention goes into these beauties? Well, the monochrome badges are hand-crafted by artisan jewellers in Birmingham’s jewellery quarter. 

Beneath the beauty lurks a beast: a twin-scroll supercharged 5.0-litre V8 sends 601 bhp to the rear wheels via a 6-speed semi-automatic ZF transmission, giving a 0-60mph time of 4.2 seconds and a limited top speed of 155mph.

David Brown, CEO and Founder at David Brown Automotive, said:
“This latest in a line of limited-edition Silverstone Editions is a reminder of the continued appeal of the Speedback shape. This particular model represents the crystallisation of what David Brown Automotive stands for; emotive, timelessly stylish motor cars, that marry bespoke coachbuilding techniques and high build quality with modern performance and an exhilarating, affecting driving experience. Our growing base of customers around the world trust us to imbue each car we produce with these attributes.”
